    My current client just asked me to sign a 12 month contract with a 2.5% rate escalation. I asked 4 permanent members of staff on the planned approach to IR35 reform as part of the contract negotiation. Responses as follows:

    My main client focal point: "I don't know anything about IR35"

    The contract specialist dealing with my contract: "we are still awaiting confirmation of the details have set up a working group and will be delivering details and determinations over the coming months"

    Client Asset Manager: "we rely heavily on contractors as you know, this has been discussed as a business threat up to board level. Much of this is still being worked. But as yet, we don't know how it will play out"

    Contract Manager (informal chat): "I'd expect us to use this as a means of separating out those contractors that we don't really care if they quit with those that we want to keep"

    Basically, they're in a holding pattern...

    I expect to be determined outside but I expect to use this as the catalyst I need to retire nonetheless. We settled on 15%.
